About the Authors
  • The period from Kant to Hegel is one of the most intense and rigorous in modern philosophy. The central problem at the heart of it was the development of a new standard of theoretical reflection and of the principle of rationality itself. The essays in this volume, published in 2000, consider both the development of Kant's system of transcendental idealism in the three Critiques, the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science, and the Opus Postumum, as well as the reception and transformation of that idealism in the work of Fichte, Schelling and Hegel.

    • Kant and his followers are a strong area for Cambridge
    • Pre-eminent list of contributors (Anglo-American and German), many of whom are successful Cambridge authors (e.g. Henry Allison, Karl Ameriks, Paul Guyer, Robert Pippin and Allen Wood)
